  • A design for a sediment flux sensor is provided for use in sedimentation studies in lacustrine and shallow marine environments. The sensor utilizes an optical system to measure sediment accumulation with a data logger. Unlike other passive
  • or mechanical sediment trapping systems, the sediment flux sensor records the time of deposition precisely and therefore is useful for investigating the linkages between external processes (hydrological) and sedimentation.

  • The aim of this study is to determine the seasonal and spatial patterns of sedimentation rates in Lake Kinneret. The method used in this study minimized the problem of sediment resuspension from the lake bottom, by locating the traps above lake
  • bottom. The rate of sedimentation near the Jordan's inflow is highly correlated to flow discharge in the river, while in the centre of the lake the seasonal sedimentation pattern is mainly correlated to the bloom period of Peridinium gatunense.

  • This paper presents a preliminary assessment of fluvial sediment storage and yield in an urbanized, karst watershed. The AA. aim to identify and quantify the function of caves and sinkholes within the context of a sediment budget with 3 specific
  • objectives : to investigate the function (source or sink) of sinkholes with respect to sediment transport; to demonstrate how sinkhole sedimentation rates can be used as an indicator of basin sediment yield from some sinkhole drainage basins; and to determine
  • the relative contribution of a major cave system to a preliminary sediment budget for a karst watershed.

  • In this study, sediments from Thompson Lake, Virginia, are used to study the last 30 years of sediment yield from the 3.8 km2 contributing catchment. Sediment yield changes at this site are found to be related primarily to precipitation history
  • . This result as well as an established relationship between sediment magnetism and particle size allow for a simple evaluation of sediment yield frequency and magnitude. Two magnetic susceptibility peaks identified in the sediment record are hypothesized
  • to represent discrete flood sediment strata, one resulting from hurricane Agnes in 1972.

  • It is generally supposed that specific sediment yield declines as the drainage basin area increases, as part of the mobilized sediment becomes trapped in the downstream cascade of storage zones. Using a larger data set of lake sediment-based
  • estimates of long-term sediment yield, sub-regional patterns of specific yield have been investigated for the Canadian Cordillera. The results suggest that no single model of sediment yield is adequate to describe sediment transfer processes in the Canadian

  • Influence of storm-related sediment storage on the sediment delivery from tributary catchments in the Upper Waipaoa River, New Zealand
  • Cross section ; Cyclone ; Fluvial terrace ; Gully erosion ; Mass movement ; New Zealand ; North Island ; Precipitation ; Rainstorm ; Sediment budget ; Sediment load ; Stream ; Watershed
  • Sediment delivery ratios focused on the influence of storm-related sediment storage are measured at Matakonekone and Oil Springs tributaries of the Waipaoa River basin, east coast of New Zealand. The terrace deposits of both tributaries show
  • abundant evidence of storm related sedimentation, especially sediment delivered from Cyclone Bola, a 50 year return rainfall event which occurred in 1988. The sediment delivery ratio is calculated by dividing the volume of sediment transported from
  • a tributary to the main stream by the volume of sediment generated at erosion sites in the tributary catchment.

  • In this work, the AA. apply the techniques developed for determining basin-wide sediment generation rates in small basins to both the entire Yuma Wash drainage and to smaller sub-basins of the Wash. Tracing nuclide concentrations in sediment along
  • the length of Yuma Wash, the AA. identify significant sediment source areas. Nuclide concentrations in upland basins represent the production rate of sediment from the weathering of bedrock (sediment generation). Nuclide concentrations in main stem samples
  • reflect both upland sediment generation and the long-term effects of sediment storage and reworking.
